This Sunday Portland Bride & Groom is putting together a bridal blitz unlike any other. If you’re getting hitched, know anyone who’s about to, or, hey, you just feel like the time might be close, get yourself down to the Nines this weekend. In one fun afternoon you can check out around 90 local vendors that cover every aspect of the big event and then head off to an Oscar party for a full day of pretty party time.
You’ll get the chance to check out the Nines as the venue for a wedding reception, guest accommodations, a rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, and whatever else you can possibly think of. Three top bridal consultants have combined efforts to present three different styles of weddings: a traditional champagne formal wedding, an urban extravaganza with vibrant colors, and one over-the-top Lady Gaga–themed day with rich colors and extravagance galore. Each of the areas will have florists, photographers, cakes, wine/spirits, catering, and fashion for you to inspect.
The fun won’t stop there. There’s a “Groom’s Room,” boutique vendors for before, during, and after the big day (hello, honeymoon!), spas, fitness folks, accessories, and hair and makeup experts. And the cost to get in on all this action? Zilch, zero, nada. Just register to come, bring your gaggle of girls and enjoy the party.
Not a shabby way to spend a Sunday afternoon, eh?
